Samson Comes Alive in Iraq
Sun., Apr. 16. 2006 1:16am EDT
Although we're not exactly the Bob Hopes of contemporary Christian music, we did have the honor of playing at three military bases last year, and we do get email from soldiers from time to time, and that's always very special to us. Here's a recent email we'd like to share with you:
It's 2340 hrs here in Ramadi, Iraq and I've just finished watching the "Samson Comes Alive" DVD that I just got in the mail. What an awesome DVD.
My family (minus myself, I was here) had the opportunity to attend this concert. My wife and four sons made it on video many times. Karl tossed his guitar pick to one of my boys at the end after J. introduced him. I noticed that all four of my boys had made their way to the front against the stage right in front of you. They all had an awesome time and I had such a great time watching the concert.
I can't wait to share this DVD with as many fellow soldiers here as possible. They continually hear me talk about the band and I've had many listening to your music. Now I've got even more I can share. I want them to experience God's gift that he's given the ApologetiX's just like my family, friends, and myself.
Latest update on my oldest son and his guitar. He's joined our church's contemporary service band. My wife says he's so excited to be playing Christian music using the gifts God has blessed him with. Once again, I have to give you some of the credit, because of our first ApologetiX concert in Union City, Indiana and him seeing that it was cool to play Christian rock on the guitar.
I'm hoping to be returning home in July and can't wait to attend some of your concerts.
May God continue to bless each of you and your families.
Your Friend in Christ
